Melanie Jane

Wedding Photographer

I am an Essex Based wedding photographer working
throughout the UK and available for destination weddings.

Hello, I’m Melanie Jane. I have had a passion for photography for over 25 years, and my love of the art has never diminished.

My interest began when I was working as a MUA for Photographers around the UK, and became inspired to train formally as a Professional Photographer. When I qualified I began working for studios around London and Essex, before going it alone with my brand Melanie Jane Photography. This proved to be the best decision I made, as it enabled me to develop my own style. I have since gone on to shoot over 100 weddings.

I extremely enjoy working with my couples and their nearest and dearest because I love getting to know and photographing people. I’m so fortunate to have the best job in the world

When I’m not shooting and editing weddings, I love to spend time in the great outdoors with my husband and my Cocker Spaniel, Hamish.

Excellent service, Brilliant photos!

Melanie Jane was an absolute professional! She was a joy to work with and easy to get on with. She went the extra mile and was flexible with the days plans.

Melanie captured amazing moments of our wedding day and made sure all our key photos were captured. She’s very creative and clearly loves what she does. Our wedding photos looked amazing, with every detail and colour captured brilliantly.

We made the best decision in booking Melanie Jane’s photography services and would highly recommend.

Brilliant Photography

We cannot recommend Melanie Jane enough! We had the pleasure of having Melanie capture our day and her attention to detail and professionalism was second to none! She was able to capture everything that we had discussed prior to our wedding and more! Even offered us a complimentary family shoot after our day as our youngest was not keen on posing for photos on the day! Melanie even stayed past the agreed to due to some late changes to the order of the day. Very good value for money and we had our image catalogue, very nicely presented in a bespoke box, within 2 weeks of our wedding day! Would definitely recommend Melanie Jane, friendly and attentive service at a very competitive price.

Excellent photographer

Our photographer, Melanie, demonstrates professionalism and courtesy. Our wedding photos are high quality, good lighting so natural and beautiful. She captured a lot of cherished moments which are beautifully preserved. She helped me a lot with my poses and gave me some ideas. We had a lovely presentation of our photos.

Incredible experience & photos from Melanie Jane!

Melanie Jane was very friendly yet professional from start to finish. We really appreciated the “get to know you” session ahead of the wedding to meet and discuss the style of photography we would like. It also helped put us at ease in front of the camera.

On the day of our wedding, Melanie Jane was incredible. Despite the gale force winds she was able to capture lovely moments with all of our friends and family.

The presentation of our photos in a personalised box with some print outs and memory stick of the rest of our images was a lovely, unexpected touch.

Would definitely recommend Melanie Jane for your photography needs. Thank you so much for helping make our day so special x

Melanie was friendly, professional and she also had so much fun with us, she made our day the extra bit special. We would recommend Melanie to anyone who is getting married. 5 Star service all round.

Melanie creates magic

Melanie photographed our wedding on the 12th May 2023 at Cain Manor in Surrey. Leading up to our wedding Melanie was super helpful and took us through how she likes to work and what we wanted from our wedding shots, timings, and various options for different weather scenarios. Melanie took time out to visit the venue with me before the wedding day so she could get a feel for the venue and photo opportunities. She truly is passionate about her work and goes the extra mile. She has captured the most special moments of our special day and has a magical way of finding the perfect angle, lighting, and expression. We have some amazing natural and creative photos. Melanie is extremely professional and unobtrusive and put myself, my husband and all of our guests at ease throughout the day. We will treasure our photographs forever. Our personalised USB stick arrived in a beautiful personalised wooden box with a few printed images and was a lovely touch and a keepsake we can treasure. We cannot recommend Melanie enough if you are looking for a highly skilled photographer to capture all those special moments of your wedding day she really does create magic.

We are looking forward to finalising our wedding album with Melanie and creating the perfect story of our special day with the magical moments she captured.

Wonderfully skilled, friendly and highly professional – must be your first choice!

Melanie and Beth assured great commitment, patience and understanding in delivering our photography plus driving ideas should there have been mixed weather opportunities and timings to make our moments be treasured on our special day.
We are thrilled with how it went, so were especially pleased for having chosen to work with Melanie and Beth, as their experience and skill was certainly noted.
Not only on the day, but in the build-up, we found their time in a getting to know you session plus communication as well as working with the venue at The Lawn very reassuring. This along with making us and our guests comfortable means that they made it very special and it will always be memorable for us, as well as many others.
The personalised USB stick with all the images arrived in a wonderful wooden box along with a handful of print outs – just lovely – hugely recommended and priceless value. You want to seek Melanie’s availability before any other options.

Amanda T

Simply wonderful

We 100% recommend Melanie Jane.
She has a very calming energy that manages to put you at ease and captures the most outstanding and unique images.
It rained on our wedding day, but this did not dampen Melanie Janes enthusiasm, she constantly reassured and captured images I didn’t think possible considering the weather, even if this meant Melanie Jane getting completely soaked!
She is highly approachable and welcoming to your guests yet manages to remain professional at all times.

Fantastic Experience

Melanie captured all of our precious wedding day memories from beginning to end amazingly. She is such a lovely person, nothing is too much trouble and she is a very professional and experienced photographer. We wouldn’t have had the brilliant day we had without her. I would absolutely recommend Melanie without hesitation.
